Hosted by NBA veteran Etan Thomas, this unique athlete-first podcast will explore the differences between how we see professional athletes and who they really are. The Rematch takes a look at the thin line between love and hate in sports; a show that examines the nature of media and popular opinion by giving athletes an open forum to reclaim their identities from labels like “polarizing,” “mercurial,” and “immature.” The Rematch is part of the BasketballNews.com Podcast Network.
